The union that represents Toronto Transit Commission will follow its usual practice and will not comment on the Toronto Police Service charges today against the operator of a TTC bus that killed Amaria Diljohn on December 21, 2014 near the corner of Neilson Road and Finch Ave. East.

“Amaria’s death was a great tragedy that affected us all,” said Bob Kinnear, President of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113. “We cannot bring her back but her grieving family deserves to know what happened.”

Kinnear said that the union offered its full cooperation with the police investigation immediately upon learning of the accident.

“We hope that the questions we all have about this tragedy will ultimately be resolved by the justice system. Towards that end, we will continue to offer our full cooperation.”
